Two numerical methods for solving a backward heat conduction problem. (English) Zbl 1102.65098
Two stable numerical methods for the backward heat conduction problem are presented. The methods seem not new. The choice of the space-step in the central finite-difference method is not justified theoretically. The paper seems an academical numerical exercise.
